How to Spend 2 Days in Maputo

How to Spend 2 Days in Maputo

Two days in Maputo gives you ample time to see the city’s highlights, while also exploring less-visited areas and soaking up the cultural, culinary, and nightlife scenes. Here’s how to spend 48 hours in the Mozambican capital.

Day 1: Soak Up the Scene

**Morning:**Get your bearings while checking off Maputo’s major sights, such as the architecturally stunning train station, Cathedral of Our Lady of Conception (Nossa Senhora da Conceição), the fortress, and central market, on a guided tour by vehicle, bike, or on foot. Some tours also include lunch at one of the city’s many excellent restaurants. 

**Afternoon:**You may have already had a glimpse on your morning tour, but the Museum of Natural History deserves even more of your time. Take a stroll around to appreciate its elegant Manueline architecture and garden with a mural by Mozambican painter and poet Malangatana Ngwenya, then go inside to explore the fascinating exhibits, including elephant fetuses.

**Night:**Get an introduction to the city’s lively nightlife scene on an evening tour that includes dinner at a seafood restaurant, visits to some of the city’s best bars, and entrance to a nightclub—you won’t have to worry about how to get home, as these tours typically include hotel pickup and drop-off.

Day 2: Explore Deeper

**Morning:**If you’d like to escape the city for your second day and soak up the sun on a beach, you have lots of options. Day tours from Maputo can take you to Macaneta or Bilene Beach or to lush Inhaca Island.

**Afternoon:**If you opted to stay in the city, soak up the local art scene this afternoon at the Chissano Gallery Museum (Museu Galeria Chissano), where works of renowned sculptor Alberto Chissano are on display, or the National Art Museum (Museu Nacional de Arte), which houses paintings and sculptures by the nation’s best contemporary artists, including Chissano.

**Night:**Having been introduced to the local nightlife last night, you’ll likely feel more confident in hitting the bars and clubs independently. First, though, make a stop at one of Maputo’s many excellent seafood restaurants for dinner. At the Fish Market in the east of the city, you can select your fish and then have it grilled at one of the adjoining restaurants.
